EDISON, NJ -- The Wardlaw + Hartridge School in Edison celebrated Confucius Classrooms Day with a series of cultural activities on October 4. Students in all three divisions participated in the programs.

Chinese language students and international students joined in a special song - Moon Represents My Heart - during Upper School morning meeting. Hua Liu, Mandarin teacher, introduced the performance and also invited students to view a display of photos and cultural items in the new alcove in the AP Room. Middle and Lower School students took the opportunity to peruse those items during their lunch periods.

During the afternoon in Lower Snowdon, well known Chinese artist Hengyi Aisin-gioro taught Lower, Middle and Upper School students a special painting technique. She is a descendant of the royal family of the Qing Dynasty. She was lucky enough to have the care of the last emperor Puyi and Puyi’s brother Pujie. Her background gave her access to the court tradition in painting and opportunities to see numerous famous paintings held in the imperial court at a very early age. Hengyi transcended the court tradition in Chinese painting and formed a unique style of her own, which she shared with W+H students.

To those of us in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.

Dear Editor:

After Bruce Patterson of Garwood was stopped from speaking at the Union County Freeholder meeting of March 22 regarding the politics behind refusing to give the party line to a sitting Freeholder, I thought this brazen suppression of free speech could not go unanswered.

At the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.
